Faculty of Business Studies Arab Open University Organizations and People B628 Tutor Monitoring Assignment Spring 2021 TMA introduction After approximately one year of ups and downs with covid-19 virus, 2021 brought some good news to people with the vaccine. Many information was shared about various vaccines. Some are with the vaccines; others are against it. In various countries, the vaccine was administrated by the end of 2020. Communication about the vaccines was in some places clear, in others not very clear and left a lot of doubts when it comes to the administration of the vaccine. QUESTION By considering your country as a case study, and particularly the ministry of health, discuss how information about the vaccine was communicated and disciminated. Do you consider yourself as having enough knowledge about the vaccine to take a rational decision of whether to take it or not? (Word limit: 2000 words). Hint: in your essay, you need to consider the following: The communication climate: open communication climate and closed communication climate. From this perspective, you need to discuss which climate was mainly dominant when it comes to communicating information about the vaccine.Ways to improve the communication climate: what has been done or need to be done to improve such communication and have a clearer information about the vaccine.Models of communication: which model can be said to be more representative of the communication situation in your country and draw an illustration of that.Difference between data, information and knowledge: what was mainly shared can be considered as data only or did it really lead to information and later on some knowledge about the vaccine to be administrated.Information flows and different types of information: what types of information were shared and what information you would have wanted to be shared and was not.Your discussion should be supported with evidence (references) from both course material and additional resources you referred to.Refrain in your answer to discuss personal opinion or judgements about the issue. Personal opinion, if any, can be provided in the conclusion. From this perspective, you may choose to discuss whether you are willing to do the vaccine or not and explain why with reference to the line of discussion you have provided.Concepts are not necessarily to be discussed in this order. You may discuss them in any order you like as long as there is a comprehensive discussion. Pay attention:  Do not copy information as is whether from the course material or the articles you are to refer too.You are to provide a discussion and demonstrate understanding of various concepts and not just list and describe.You have to refer to B628 relevant course material from chapters 2 and 5, AND additional information from YOUR country ministry of health that is your case study (website, published brochures, etc.).Remember to cite your sources in the text and to prepare a table of references at the end.Referring to course material alone is not enough. Referring to external resources alone is not enough. You need to use the course material as the base to explore and explain the information in the course material and mentioned external resources.Personal opinion should be limited to the conclusion and should not be a basis for your discussion.
